Importance of Bad People

Why do we despise bad people?

Why do we try and try to forgive bad people, but still their speeches and actions constantly upset us?

Is it because we fail to see that we ourselves are also bad? or

Is it because we fail to UNDERSTAND importance of the “bad” itself?

Because without bad, there will be no good to compare with.

Without bad, there will be no examples of it to see, no challenges… no striving to realise the Noble Truths, no Enlightenment, no Buddha, Dhamma or Sangha.

And without bad… there will be nothing to inspire people to be good.

No wrongs, no rights.

No bad guys, no good guys

No bad monks, no good monks.

No Devadassa, No Buddha.

Understand first… then forgive

and be free.
